Karma's a Bitch Review

        Karma is such a bitch that at the end of day you wind up becoming her bitch. To every action there's a reaction so if you throw dirt be prepared to get dirty. In Karma's a Bitch by J.Gail, Tony Jackson was hit my karma on numerous occasions but didn't change his ways until  things got out of hand and a light bulb went off on the top of his head that living as an unemployed, selfish, loud mouth is no way to be.

         Karma's a Bitch is a creative, entertaining novel that takes urban fiction into a different direction. When reading urban fiction I am sure we all can agree that we either read about the glamorous life or life down in the dumps. But when you read Karma's a Bitch you are taken into a part of life which falls in between the rich and the poor known as middle class. The characters each view and lives life differently which makes it possible for readers from all walks of life to relate to the novel. Tony does not live in a big fancy house or wears designer clothes, or has any money for that matter. Instead  he is unemployed and prefers to make a living by mooching off of women including his grandmother,but this is not just about Tony take a walk into the life's of the people closest to him and read how each and everyone of his actions effects the life's of the people he surrounds himself with and how he drags them through the mud right along with him. This is not your typical novel or man so I an guarantee you will enjoy what you read.

        The moment you open this book you're emotions are being stirred, one second your angry, and the next your laughing. This novel hits life itself on the head, it takes you into the male and female psyche. I have heard on several occasions from urban fiction readers that they put the genre down for a second simply because they believe a lot of the books have the same topics and are predictable, but J.Gail's novel does not fit into that category. Yes it is urban fiction, but the storyline and trials and tribulations takes on its own identify. The book was never a bore, never made me want to jump a head or rush through, actually the only time I rushed the reading was while on the train because I wanted to know what happened before getting off.

        This novel does not overwhelm you with certain issues, for example J.Gail keeps you're interest piqued by going into different relationship issues and different struggles from different characters. The author knows when to talk about one character and when to move on to the next. You will not think to yourself whatever happened too etc because they have disappeared for such along time instead they are intertwined so graciously within the writing it's as if they never left but stepped out the room for a second.

       However, the character Jenny I do wish got a little crazier and went to new heights, for me she was that character that could have made the novel explode but instead slowly started to dwindle. Jenny has the makings of a real psycho and I do like my nut cases in my novels lol, that is the only thing I would have changed Jenny would have never stopped, Jenny would have went a little bit further but then again I can respect the route J.Gail went with the character because she did come across as more realistic and less fiction like.

        The ending was a breath of fresh air, down from the last chapter to the last sentence. I am a picky reader, I do not recommend just any book and I look for novels that stick out and have their own voice, so if you want something different, something out of the ordinary pick up Karma's a Bitch because we all know in order for someone to get up they have to get knocked down.
